One Day fotd

Hiya everyone!

Today, my best friend and I went to the cinema to go see One Day. I loved the movie, but a word of advice :if you someone who very easily cries at movies, be prepared for this. I was still sniffing when the credits rolled! I just have too many feelings, I reckon.

Anyway, true to my promise in my Sleek Saturday post, I decided to try pink and gold out together.

I was getting quite hacked off at how you can't actually see my eye makeup when I'm looking at the camera! It made all the normal shots look bad and got me quite annoyed; I think I need to experiment a bit more with my eye makeup technique!

See?! You can only see my eye makeup when I'm looking down. Anyway, on to the actual products. For my eyemakeup, I used Pink Punch from the Sleek Good Girl Palette and my trusty gold, Half Baked by Urban Decay. For eyeliner, I didn't go with Maybelline (for once!) and instead used Shadowline by Frontcover and the black from the Sleek Sunset palette. As for Mascara, I used a sample of the new Clarins mascara that you get redeemed by showing this card you get in September's Glamour (if that's not a reason to get it, you also get a free makeover!) and Clinique High Impact.

My face routine is the same as usual with Benefit Boo-ing concealer and the Collection 2000 one. My blush is L'Oreal True Match in Rosewood, I think. And I used Sleek Pout Paints in Milkshake and Pinkini for my lips.

I love this combination and will be using it more often, perhaps with other shades from the Good Girl palette. I'm really glad I did Sleek Saturday because it's helped me use my Good Girl palette more instead of leaving it abandoned. Now to do the same with the rest of my palettes!

What do you girls think of this look? And does anyone else have that problem with typical fotd poses not showing your eye makeup? xx
